Madonna and Child, Hans Memling

Hans Memling was one of the most popular and successful painters of the early Renaissance. The painting shown on this stamp is in the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC. Because his paintings are easy to enjoy, in his lifetime he found many clients among religious houses, the prosperous bourgeoisie of Flanders, and visiting merchants from Italy. His style changed so little during his career that historians have found it difficult to date his works.
